  1. Id love a Luxman amp, but i always get put off by the giant mark up they have in this country, im sure as hell that for the price they cost here in the uk that better amplification can be bought for the equivelent kind of money. If i lived in the far east..Luxman would be the top of my list as the value for money is unbelievable, but its just not justifiable here in the uk. Second hand....well maybe

    The Guys Overseas

    fuck em, its there job, there choice, to me there job is just the same as a sandwich packer, Ive never met an average soldier who can actually have a fight, statistics show that armed forces geeks 9 times out of 10 had only 2 to 3 proper friend throughout childhood, these statistics also show that armed forces leavers have not got a friend who has not been gained other than through armed force geekery.... its actually true you know A modern day english soldier couldnt handle a chav on the local shopping precinct, absolute panseys, beer swilling panseys....

  5. I learnt that Hi-fi is a con full stop, the iceing was on the cake when my sony midi system speakers that are 12 years old and can be bought off ebay for £10 are better sounding than better built than my £1000 speakers??? Oh yeah nearly forgot about around June this year when i went up to my friends new house where he had his dj set up in a spare bedroom with a 20yr old akai basic amplifier, one 17yr old jamo speaker, 2 technics 1210's,a crappy mixer all running through throw away leads and it sounded absolutly amazing,...to the point where i wished my £5000 setup sounded half as good, Oh last but not least i discovered that Modern day Hi-Fi is bass shy beyond belief, no no no infact i discovered that hifi is embarassing, how people can over engineer there perception of the sound they THINK they hear is absolutly sickening to the core.
  6. An Amplifier with tone controls is on the cards for me, bass shy hifi is going out of the window for 2009, Accuphase E-350 is looking like the favorite

  9. Hi there, Just wondering if anyone else thinks that Marantz has a unhealthy love of sacd and sacd tuned amps etc How come every single product above the 6002 range seems to be geared towards SACD?

    Cassette decks

    My Denon deck gets used just as much as my cdp.
  12. The dealer in question is an utter moron, threaten to beat him up, i did, he starts being alot more friendly then. I asked him if he had the amplifier i wanted in black and he told me that if i wanted a conventional product i should shop elsewhere........wtf????
